I can't say enough good things about this beautiful garment! Not only is it fabulous looking, it is sooo soft and incredibly warm without being heavy. I wear it all different ways. Lately in this freezing cold weather I drape it around my shoulders like a shawl and then wrap it gently around my neck. I am a bird lover and this pattern reminds me of chickadees and downy woodpeckers; the tencel fabric is soft like feathers. It was so clearly made with love!
